Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass!
This one should be a little bit aged, meanwhile, hehe. Pours hazy copper colored with a high, soapy head. Smell has slight floral hops and some spicy malts. Starts with lots of floral hops, herbs, and spicy malt notes. Very fizzy carbonation. Finish is slight soapy, very herbal, with a musty note in the background...

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is big herbal and spicy hops, touch of malt in the background. Flavour is intense hops, bitter but not too much, mostly spicy. Nice.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Hazy amber color; big head; too high carbonation actually. Nice hop aroma, even if not the typical Saaz: it’s a bit grassy, very light citrus fruits and chamomile, light cereals aroma too. The flavor is a blend of caramel and some cereals; quite strong bitterness, with grassy and earthy tones, but the Saaz doesn’t really fly, no hop freshness. A pleasant IPA, but...

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Seifig-hopfiger Antrunk, in dem rauchig-bittere Noten stören. Diese entwickeln sich weiter und bleiben störend, gummiartig, muffig, beim Hopfen störend, der nun nur noch wenig aromatisch ist. Trocken, dunkel, etwas malzig. Bitter-gummiartiges Finish. Die anderen Hopburst Biere waren deutlich besser! 11/8/7/7/11/7

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
330ml bottle, no.202, from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Cloudy golden body. Full, frothy white head that left a good amount of spotty lacing on the glassware. Smell of dusty hops. Spiced dry hops in interplay with earthy malts in flavour. Rather sharp bitter ending. Well balanced and fine bodied (shared with Finn, Tromsø 17.11.2010).

Flaske 0,33l påspandert av Rune og delt med ham i WC-veien 17 Nov 11. Aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum. Svakt krydret aroma med innslag av frukt. God smak med mye frukt. Godt integrert. Syrlig bitter ettersmak.
